Best Location in Ixtapa

  • 5 of 5

Unbelievable view from the living room and deck. Very secure/safe with 24hr security. Very clean condo, grounds and professionally run. The pools were not crowded like the surrounding properties we could see. Very relaxing. Everyone at Amara was helpful - security, administration and the palapa crew. Lourdes was quick to respond to any questions before and during our trip. Highly recommended if going to Ixtapa.

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent property. It is very secure and has all the amenities one could ask for. The beds were comfortable, and the place is very clean and nicely appointed. The main shopping and dining area of Ixtapa is right across the street and the locals are freindly and welcoming. We hope to be back again!

Very gracious hostess

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apt after Christmas through New Years. We were graced with Lourdes' kind and gentile guidance about Mexican customs and, in particular, the Luminaries lit on New Years Eve. (Lourdes was staying in a nearby unit.)

The condo, pool, beach and town provided the diversity our multi-generational group needed.

I strongly recommend this home and hostess.

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks in Feb, 2015. It was a gorgeous, spacious condo. The beds were VERY comfortable. We also had maid service, she was a real nice lady. We had a incredible view on the 6th floor of the Ocean & Sunset. The landscape / pools were very well maintained. The staff / security were very helpful & friendly. Very good Restaurant's & shopping, we were in walking distance's. Also if you needed a taxi or bus it was right in front of the Condo. We enjoyed daily walks on the beach, it was a very nice place to relax & enjoy the sun. We would like to Thank Lourdes gomez, you were more than generous & helpful in our stay. We would highly recommend & We would love to return. Thanks again :)
